It’s not so usual to see that the Kansas City Chiefs are underdogs, especially with Patrick Mahomes leading the way.
But that’s the case when they head to Glendale, Arizona, for their Super Bowl LVII matchup vs. the red-hot Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
Of course, they need as much help as they can get, meaning they cannot afford to have some of their best offensive contributors on street clothes.
That’s why it was such a relief when NFL insider Tyler Dragon reported that Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney is back to full strength and ready to suit up for the big game after suffering an ankle injury during the AFC Championship Game vs. the Cincinnati Bengals.
Kadarius Toney told me he’s “definitely” playing on Sunday. He suffered an ankle injury in the AFC championship game.

Toney has most definitely turned his career around since joining the Chiefs midseason.
He played in seven games, made three starts, and hauled in 14 receptions on 17 targets for 171 yards (12.2 yards per catch) and two touchdowns, adding five rushes for 59 yards and one additional score.
Toney’s ability to spread the field and create separation has been key for the Chiefs as of late, logging more than half of his receptions for either a first down or a score.
Also, with Mecole Hardman most likely missing the big game due to an injury, the Chiefs will need everybody to step up and be ready when their number is called.
The Eagles’ defense is one of the stoutest in the league, and they’ll make this a hard-fighting battle, but if someone can take them down, that’s Patrick Mahomes.NEXT: Andy Reid Talks About His 3 Keys To Life
